This was our first Tandem Expo. We went with the intention of ordering a bike, but still had questions about the strengths and weakness of different options. We got to see first hand what things look like and how they perform. Would I have driven four hours to go, yes I think I would have. Keep in mind that it is easy for me to say, because I can’t drive and my wife would have had to do the driving. We would have probably tied something else into the trip, like camping. We did not have a tandem or the experience to participate in the group ride scheduled on Sunday. It looked like they were having fun.
It was pleasing to see young and old, thin and not so thin, sporty and leisurely riders all together searching for something special. Will we go back? My guess would be yes. I saw several couples there who had bought a bike the year before and were there to look at the eye candy.
We ordered a DaVinci Joint Venture.
